KOLT’s Teaching in English and Teaching Practicum track is designed for instructors who are non-native speakers of English but who use the language as their primary medium of instruction. The pre-recorded video offers participants practical and actionable strategies for improving the clarity and efficacy of their English-language instruction. Participants will come away with functional approaches and concrete tips for designing and delivering confident instruction (lectures, seminars, and laboratory sections) in English, while maintaining and increasing their students’ levels of comprehension and content mastery. The video covers effective lesson structures that facilitate and increase student comprehension, the nature and use of signposting language, strategies for generating student engagement in English-language discussions, tips for becoming conversational in individual disciplines, the importance of classroom discourse and up-to-date scholarship on effective, student-centered teaching methods. Participants will be asked to complete a short assignment to apply the knowledge they gain through viewing the video.
This will be followed by course design and lesson plan workshops in which participants will design their own sample course and a lesson plan in EMI with instructor support. Finally, participants will undertake a teaching practicum, video-recording a sample lesson and receiving individualized instructor feedback on their teaching skills and use of English. Participants are expected to record a ten-minute micro-lesson, share it with the instructor(s) and attend an individualized session to receive feedback.
